Champions League final: Ticket costs dropping is not a typical thing, as any well-traveled football fan knows. Discounts are being offered for the 2022 UCL final by the continental governing body.
Ticket price change for UCL final
This year’s semi-finalists – Liverpool, Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Villarreal – submitted a proposal to UEFA, requesting a reform to the ticket allocation mechanism.
This was accepted, and supporters of the two finalists will receive a discount on category 3 and 4 tickets for the big match on May 28 in Paris.
This adjustment means that instead of offering 5,000 free tickets per team, the discount will be applied, which has the same overall financial worth and will be completely supported by UEFA.
How much are the 2022 Champions League game ticket price?
This will assist 15,600 fans of each side, who will now pay €60 instead of €70 for category 4 tickets and €150 instead of €180 for category 3 seats.
The intentions for free tickets for fans of finalist teams in the Europa League, Europa Conference League, and Women’s Champions League have not changed, according to UEFA.
Champions League final
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said reaching his fourth Champions League final as a coach was “almost like a fresh experience” after his team rallied back from a two-goal deficit against Villarreal to win 5-2 on aggregate.
Liverpool, who had led 2-0 after the first leg in England last week, was stunned by two goals in the first half by the Spanish team. Three second-half goals, though, ensured the German’s third Champions League final in five seasons.
Klopp, who guided Borussia Dortmund to the final of the competition in 2013, told BT Sport, “It seems like the first in 20 (years).” “It’s remarkable because we definitely made it a little difficult for ourselves, but we expected this to happen.”
Liverpool will meet Real Madrid in the final in Paris. Real Madrid played Manchester City in the second leg in Madrid on Wednesday night, with the visitors holding a slim 4-3 aggregate lead.
Despite being behind 1-0, Madrid scored two goals in the final three minutes to win the game in extra-time thanks to a Benzema penalty.
Paris switch for final
Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine at the end of February, UEFA postponed the Champions League final, which was set to take place on May 28 in St. Petersburg, Russia, at a stadium built for the 2018 World Cup and financed by Gazprom, one of UEFA’s key sponsors (a Russian energy company).
A day after the invasion, UEFA decided to strip Russia of its hosting rights and relocate the tournament to the Stade de France in Saint-Denis in Paris. The UEFA Executive Committee had an exceptional meeting today in response to the grave escalation of the security situation in Europe, according to a statement released by the UEFA.
In addition, UEFA announced that Russian and Ukrainian teams, as well as their national teams, will play all of their home games in neutral territory.
Time and date for the UCL final
The showpiece final will take place in Paris on Saturday, May 28 at 21:00 CEST (local time), which is 3:00 p.m. ET or 12:00 p.m. PT, with Liverpool aiming for their seventh UCL title and Real Madrid aiming for their fourteenth European success.
